June 3, 2016: But Wait! There's More!

When word came in late April that Winnipeg’s supersalesman Phil Kives had passed away, it brought back a rush of memories from the 1970s. Who could forget those amped-up K-Tel commercials promoting miracle products like the Hair Magician, Patti-Stacker, Record Selector (with new, space-age design) and, of course, the Veg-O-Matic? Another Canuck, Dan Akryod, would ride his parody of the slicing and dicing manual food processor to great heights, pitching the Bass-O-Matic on Saturday Night Live.

As the days grow longer and the temperature rises, we are treated to a botanical display that changes noticeably by the hour. We take full advantage of the moment, exploring new places or rediscovering familiar haunts.

While apple blossoms have come and gone and flowering magnolias are over and done, I’d like to think the bloom is never off the rose when it comes to the Carey Management Philanthropy Photos gallery. Come see what’s new!

 

Always looking forward to your comments.
